I really think it'd be a bad idea to turn the Tea Party Movement into any kind of army, ever. Seriously, that would end badly for absolutely
What I do not understand here though is why doesn't every state have something like the Texas Ranger Division. In peacetime this militia would act
as a law enforcement organization answering to the state government, but then if and when a threat arose, they can be utilized as a paramilitary
organization again answerable to the state government. It just seems like a good idea to me really.
Here in the United Kingdom the police forces, especially the Metropolitan Police Service and City Of London Police could easily be trained in a few
months into a very effective infantry force I'd think. Can American police be easily trained into military units in the event of a crisis? I think
it'd be in your best interests to have that option in place, god forbid you ever need it.
